COVID-19 Student Self-Screening

In a continued effort to reduce exposure to COVID-19, it is extremely important that parents/guardians monitor their children closely and complete at-home screening each day, including a temperature check, prior to sending their child to school. The Macomb County Health Department self-screening form can be accessed here.  Please notify the school if your child is exhibiting any symptoms and keep them home until you can see your healthcare provider.
